Canon UK Press Release

PowerShot reloaded: Canon introduces the new A-Series and launches the E-Series

United Kingdom / Republic of Ireland, 26 August 2008: Canon today re-imagines its PowerShot range with the launch of 3 stylish, extra-compact cameras. Replacing the PowerShot A580 and PowerShot A720 IS respectively, the 10MP PowerShot A1000 IS and PowerShot A2000 IS deliver outstanding PowerShot imaging in pocket-sized form, with designs around 25% smaller than those of their predecessors. In addition, an all-new type of PowerShot – the 10MP PowerShot E1, designed by women for women – brings head-turning, feminine style to the range. A new Easy Mode, featured on all three cameras, allows even complete beginners to take great photos with ease.

Ultra portable & stylish
All three models offer incredibly compact dimensions, making them the most portable PowerShot models to date. This new ultra-compact approach is complemented by stylish designs in a range of colours11 (Some colour variations may not be available in all regions). The smooth, tactile PowerShot A1000 IS comes in a choice of Blue, Brown or Silver, while the PowerShot E1 combines a unique, curvaceous aesthetic with White, Pink or Blue. The PowerShot A2000 IS features a powerful 6 x zoom with a simple, bold design in gunmetal and silver.

Great photos, the easy way
Each camera incorporates a range of Canon technologies designed to make taking pictures effortless. A range of 17 different shooting modes includes a new Easy Mode, which sees all shooting settings chosen automatically by the camera - perfect for beginners prone to making unsuitable adjustments. Easy Mode also limits Playback options to simple image viewing and deletion functions.

As well as powering features including Face Detection Technology, Canon’s DIGIC III image processor enables quick response times, fast buffering speeds, and advanced noise reduction. iSAPS technology uses shooting scene data to optimise camera settings even before a shot is taken.

Intelligent technologies for better photos
Beautiful photography becomes effortless thanks to a full suite of Canon technologies – including Face Detection Technology (including Face Select & Track), Auto Red Eye Correction for perfect people shots.

To keep shots looking sharp, Motion Detection Technology – activated in High ISO Auto mode – uses Face Detection Technology, Canon’s powerful optical Image Stabilizer and scene information to identify subject motion and camera-shake. ISO is also optimised for minimum blur and maximum image quality.

“Today sees the PowerShot range taken to a new level,” commented Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging Europe. “Each of these models offers the remarkable combination of pocket-friendly, outstanding PowerShot imaging.”

The PowerShot A2000 IS is available exclusively from Jessops from September 2008.

  1. It seems that Canon removed the manual modes from these cameras. But probably CHDK can be used to add these features?
